    Whatever happend to John Max?

    He might be obscure now, but in the 60s and the 70s, he was one of Canada's most important art photographer, worked at the NFB stills department during its heydays, went to Japan on a grant, was buddy with Leonard Cohen, but the last I've seen of him was the fact that he was going to be evicted from his flat in 2003. It seems as if he may have experienced some mental illness, and his life gradually collapsed.

    Here's a gallery online that was representing him in some official way, it seems, but they haven't updated much since 2004 :

    Write him and ask him how he is doing - [color=#0000ff]john-max@netspaceproject.com[/color].

    Here is a web page about him: http://cybermuse.gallery.ca/cybermus...Max_text_e.jsp

    BTW, I looked at his work, and I'm sorry I did. Not my cup of tea, to put it mildly.

    Robert, not to break it to you, but that link you send me it was in my first post... Thanks for the effort anyway. And I already sent them a request about him.
